Where are all the white letter trailer tires?

So I have been trailer tire shopping. I currently have outline white letter maxxis radials. They have been great tires. No complaints. In looking to replace them I have noticed that everyone has dropped the outline white letters or solid white letters. I have looked at Goodyear and Maxxis, the two brands I looked at five years ago as well as every other trailer brand I can find. I can only find black sidewalls. I have spoken with a Pete, he has no solution either.

So... I am turning to the most resourceful place for MC stuff...

Haven't seen white outlined tires on trailers since the early to mid '90s. Rarely do you see them on automobiles these days as well.

They have made a slight comeback on cars and trucks anymore. Not sure why I can't find s single trailer tire with them.

I have them on my current trailer, but they are 7 or 8 years old at this point. Back when I was looking, Goodyear Marathons were the only ones that I could find, and even then only in certain sizes. I put the white letters out on everything as I prefer the look. I wish there were more options for us in that regard for both trailers and vehicles.

I also like the looks of the white letters (must be an age thing), the last boat trailer we had I put BFG radial TA's on it, they weren't heavy duty trailer tires but our boat wasn't a really heavy boat so I didn't worry about it and they not only looked great but are an awesome tire, to bad they didn't make them it a heavy duty one as I am going to be purchasing new tires and wheels for our (new to us boat) this year, this one is a single axel trailer so will probably be getting a heavy duty tire without white letters :-(
Good luck and if you find some be sure and post them so some of us that are wanting them will have another option.
